I love old postcards, I can’t say that enough! When Whispering Pines used to mail out paper catalogs almost ever cover was an old postcard that captured the feeling of the season. One of my favorite parts about being invited to a wedding is the save the date. I don’t know why this became the number one thing I started looking forward to but I think it has something to do with the tiny bit of more creative freedom than the wedding invitation give you. Don’t get me wrong when those wedding invitations come in the mail, I am like a dog with a bone, I can’t rip into them fast enough, but there is something about the save the date that gets me all excited. When it came time for me to pick out my save the date I searched online and though I found hundreds of beautiful options I still was longing for something- that feeling that only an old postcard can capture. I found a vintage Wisconsin postcard in the Whispering Pines stash (we have thousands) and promptly asked my dad (a graphic designer, lucky me!) to make it into my save the date. Now that I have given you the background of the card, look below to check out the final product.

So now that I had the perfect save the date I had to figure out what would keep this rustic vintage trend going at the wedding. I came up with a few of my favorite WP items. Our Lakeside Lantern
